Exciting Changes in 2009

When Pamela Tracy asked me to join this blog 18 months ago, it was a pretty new project. She thought it would be fun as Love Inspired Suspense writers to get together and blog. About writing. About books. About life. A place for readers and authors to intersect.

Over time that initial group grew until there were seven ladies -- one to cover each day of the week. And this blog has developed into more than a random group of ladies who blog. We've celebrated each others success: whether books or babies :-) We've supported each other in the times filled with pain, too. And an underlying friendship has developed among us as we work to grow this site.

As we welcome a new year, we also want to welcome an additional group of Steeple Hill LIS authors to the blog. Starting with the New Year, Lenora Worth, Lynette Eason, Linda Hall, Ramona Richards, Dana Mentink, Barbara Phinney, Carol Steward, and LeAnn Harris will write with us here.

It's my pleasure to welcome them to the CRAFTIE Ladies of Suspense. This will be a wonderful opportunity for you, readers, to meet and get to know more of the LIS authors.

You'll find we're each unique and gifted in different ways in our writing. Some of us lean toward suspense and have to be reminded to develop the romance. Some like hard core suspense. Some like romance with a dash of suspense. But each of us loves writing stories for you.

So come back each day as you meet our newest members. And welcome to 2009!

Thanks for the welcome, Cara! I'm looking forward to being a part of this blog more than I have anything in a long time - well, with the except of a new book contract, that is! THANKS to the CRAFTIE ladies for a great opportunity.
